Honoring Grandfathers on Father’s Day0
Hi! My name is Lynn and I just started working with Price at www.Eldercare101.com. I’m the Director of Community Outreach and I just wanted to introduce myself.
This evening, I was just sitting here watching my wonderful husband across the room. We had just finished dinner as a family and I was reminded how blessed I am to have him in my life and how fortunate my sons are to have such a good example.
My mind wandered to my own father who I had the privilege to watch grow old and to assist from time to time. Those were special days.
With Father’s Day upon us, this is a special time to celebrate our wonderful fathers and a great opportunity to celebrate grandfathers. They set the bar for parenting style and their wisdom carried us through childhood, teen years and beyond. Take time to celebrate them this Father’s Day.
Ideas to celebrate Grandfathers on Father’s Day:
- Record a heartfelt message from family members and play it for him. A twist on this is to interview other family members about “Grandpa and why they love him so much”
- Make his favorite meal. Make it a family event
- Of course nothing takes the place of a visit/phone call to grandpa. It goes a long way. So does a heartfelt hug and a kiss on the cheek. If you can only “get there” by phone” let him hear your voice say those words we all need – “I Love You”.
Share your ideas about how you are planning to honor your father or grandfather this year. I’d love to hear from you.
Also, if you get the chance, “Like” this Facebook page, share it with your friends and family. Tell us topics you’d like to hear more about. That’s what I’m here for.
